Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf

Our last day in Rio was spent on a city tour.  The highlights were Corcovado Mountain with its monumental statue of Christ the Redeemer and the tram ride up Sugarloaf.  Corcovado is 2310 in elevation.  The concrete statue of Cristo Redentor is 125 feet high.  From the base of the statue, you have a 360 degree view of Rio.

The first tram at Sugarloaf takes you to Morro da Urca, at 722 feet elevation.

My only photo of a marmoset.  They move quickly.

From Morro da Urca you take a second tram to the top of Sugarloaf, elevation 1299 feet.  The views are spectacular.
